Reasons to Live in Nebraska: Stories from the Short-grass Prairie

by Mark Steven Hess

In “Reasons to Live in Nebraska”, you’ll find seven little stories of love and loss, tragedy and triumph, hope and despair set in a wide open country. These stories come from fictional small towns where Colorado, Wyoming, and Nebraska come together on the high plains. They are stark tales like the country from which they spring yet show a richer intricacy–a deeper intimacy–for those who care to stop and have a look, to slow down while passing through, and maybe even sit back and stay for an hour or two. Like the second story in the collection, titled “Where You Have Been, Where You Are Going” (originally published in the “The Prairie Schooner” from the University of Nebraska Press and anthologized in Best of the West 2), somehow all the stories manage to be about finding one’s way home.

Though friends try to forewarn them, their mutual inner desires entwine thrusting them on a path toward possible mutual destruction. Fate steps in at last when the two come face-to-face with a fatal challenge. Though they cannot back down from what they have created, they unwittingly involve their friends who seek to rescue them.
